Storyline

When George Hackett loses out to the well-connected Sam Purdell in the election of mayor of the town of Seatondean, Hackett is convinced that Purdell is corrupt, and, in the course of looking for proof to back his claim, he is murdered. The Saint, a friend of Sam's family, puts Purdell to the test by offering him a bribe which Purdell angrily refuses. The Saint is now sure that Purdell is in fact honest but being manipulated by another interested party, whom he manages to flush out for a showdown on top of a local building site.
